Enthusiastic Volunteers needed for Monthly Socials

The Fieldgate Centre is a community centre in Kingsclere and we want to encourage as many people as possible to use this valuable space.  We will be holding monthly socials starting in June for older people and anyone else in the community who would enjoy extra social contact during the week.  We need some enthusiastic volunteers to help on the second Tuesday of each month from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.  Our first event will be on 18th June and the socials will then be on the second Tuesday of each month.

 We’ll be serving tea & cakes and a providing a range of activities.

 We’re looking for a small team of volunteers to help set up, serve refreshments and chat to the clients. This is an ideal opportunity if you want to make new friends, to develop your skills and experience, improve the lives of older or lonely people and help them get the best from life.

We hope that the people at the first event will give us ideas for what we can do at the events in future and welcome ideas.

First aid and food hygiene training will be given to some volunteers.
